As can be seen clearly from the column chart, dramatic changes have taken place in the market share of certain brands in car markets. Themarket share taken by domestic cars increased considerably from about 25%in 2008 to 32%in 2009 while
that of Japanese cars decreased rapidly from 357 in 2008 to approximately 25% in 2009. During this period, the market share taken by American cars was relatively
stable The following factors may account for the above changes. To begin with
a series of favorable policies offered by Chinese government together with domestic enterprises com mitment to developing self-technoloqies provided a better environment for domestic car production and sale. Secondly declining qualities and worsening after-sale service gradually ruined the image of J apanese cars to
chinese people And I think if only domestic car manufactures stick to their
self-independent policy, and further improve their product qualities and after-sale services, they will take some more shares in the future.

The im portance of Cooperation you essay should start with a brief description of the picture you should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
As is graphically portrayed in the picture/cartoon/caricature, two disabled men are running fast through teamwork although each of them has only one leg. Obviously, it is cooperation that makes it possible for them to go anywhere they want to. We are informed that you have only one leg and so do I, and we can go north and south with a big stride.
Simple as it is, what the picture conveys to us is thought-provoking. The purpose of the cartoon is to show us that it is of utmost significance to be cooperative. Actually, the fact that the two disabled men help each other in the cartoon means that both of them realize the importance to cooperate. Owing to the quickening pace of life, competition goes increasingly fierce in all walks of life. /With the development of economy and society, competition is increasingly fierce in all walks of life. It is impossible for anyone to finish a work all by himself. Hence, people in mounting numbers put great emphasis on cooperation. For example, one cannot win a game if he or she does not have team spirit in various team sports. In fact, it has been universally acknowledged that the ability of collaboration is the most essential qualification that anyone who wants to achieve success should possess.
Accordingly, it is imperative for us to take some measures to enhance the sense of teamwork in our society. On the one hand, we should bear in mind that cooperation is of great significance to both our society and ourselves. On the other hand, every one should have the ability of cooperation. Only in this way can we achieve success and only in this way can our society become more harmonious to live in.

Haste Makes Waste
As a famous saying goes “Haste makes waste”, which means that one should do everything step by step. Even simple operations can easily be spoiled if we rush to complete them, neglecting important stages in the process. One should make full preparations before beginning any task.
Without a good command of pronunciation, we can never hope to speak in an understandable way. Likewise，Similarly, if we do not learn to spell properly and to acquire a basic grasp of grammar, we will never succeed in writing good compositions.
(或Actually, history abounds with examples of haste making waste. A well-known Chinese fable goes that a farmer tried to help the shoots grow by pulling them upward, only to find that they died soon. Another case in point is the so-called Great Leap Forward movement in China in 1950’s and 1960’s. At that time, the Chinese people were so eager to develop their economy that they took some improper measures, only to hinder the expansion of economy.) extension expand
(或Here I can think of no better illustration of the proverb than the experience of my own. At the age of 11 or 12, I began to learn to ride. Eager to ride as well as others, I started by sitting on the saddle at the very beginning. Predictably, I often fell from over the bike. Lots of time had been wasted before I realized that I should do it step by step. I tried to slide by standing on one pedal. Then I began to ride the bike from under the cross bar. Finally, I succeeded. )biped centipede pedestrianized rose petals
In short, laying a solid foundation is essential if we want to make achievements in our studies or work, or indeed in any other aspect of our lives. At every step, review what has been achieved and assess the problems ahead before moving to the next step. And remember, Rome was not built in a day.

My View on Fake Commodities
Nobody could have failed to notice the fact that fake commodities have been a grave problem with which we are confronted. Fake and shoddy goods flood the market. Taking a look around, we can find examples too numerous to list: pirated editions of books and films, food and drinks of poor quality and the like.
Fake and shoddy goods are bound to generate severe consequences if we keep turning a blind eye to them. First and foremost, they directly infringe upon consumers’ rights, wasting their money and threatening their health and even lives. Besides, the production and sale/circulation of fake goods cause serious losses on the part of honest and lawful producers. Last but not least, the destruction of fake commodities means a grievous waste of the nation’s resources.
In view of the seriousness of this problem, effective measures must be taken before things get worse. First, it is essential that rules and regulations be worked out and enforced to ban the manufacture and circulation of fake and shoddy goods. Secondly, the public should enhance their awareness of identifying and refusing sub-standard commodities. With proper laws and an alert public, it will only be a matter of time for fake and shoddy goods to become things of the past. / With these measures taken, it is reasonable for us to believe that the problem will be solved in the near/not-too-distant future.
